Roast Beef & Horseradish Cheddar Deli-style Sandwich
I know some people dread grocery shopping, but for me…..I’m just a kid in a candy shop. And out of necessity early Sunday morning, I discovered that to be the very best time to shop. There were parking spaces and shopping carts, wide open isles and fully stocked shelves, and oh the bakery. Everything was still warm…doesn’t that say it all. So while at 6:00 pm on any given weeknight I would rush by the bakery on my way to proteins….on this quiet Sunday morning I lingered a little longer. I was asked if I needed assistance….seemed odd to respond no thanks, I’m just looking….you can call me bread stalker. Instead without much hesitation I said I’ll have that one and please slice it thick for me.
There, I had it warmly tucked in my arms as I quickly made my way to the deli counter. I was so excited about the thought of making a good ole’ fashioned deli sandwich. Most would agree the key to a great sandwich are top quality ingredients: thinly sliced roast beef, several nice slices of horseradish cheddar, thick cut heirloom tomato, red onion, leaf lettuce, and a generous smear of our special Horsey Sauce. A mayonnaise base, with an add of cream cheese or sour cream, prepared horseradish, a little sea salt, and lots of fresh cracked pepper.
Shopping never sounded so sweet. Sunday mornings could work if I can haul myself out of bed.
